Wishing Tree Christmas Charity Concert

The Wishing Tree Christmas Charity Concert, which took place in Kosice State Theater on December 10th this yaer, was the culmination of U. S. Steel Kosice's year-round charity activity. In the five years of this project's existence the Kosice steelmakers have given beautiful gifts to nearly three thousand children to whom fate has not been kindest. This year the Company's employees brought pleasure to the children in the Spissky Stiavnik Foster Home and two institutions in Levoca, the Combined Nursery and Elementary Boarding School for children with impaired vision, and the Secondary Specialist School for students with impaired vision.
In addition to the dreamed-of gifts, the Company also donated sums of 8 500 euros to the foster home and each of the special schools. These financial resources will be used by the institutions to renovate their premises. There was another generous cash donation of 79 473.12 euros for the Eye Clinic and the Ophthalmology Department at the Louis Pasteur University Hospital in Kosice, which was the result of the steelmakers' now traditional end-of-year fund-raising, combined with matching sums from U.
